Celebrating the Holidays Safely with Ereka Vetrini

D S Simon Media

The holidays aren’t canceled. We have to reimagine them for the pandemic era.There are still a few ways to keep family traditions at the holidays alive, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Focus on the Traditions that we CAN Do It’s so easy to focus on what we can’t do right now. No matter how small the gathering, focus on keeping the traditions that bring you joy just as they have every year. Go all out with decorations. You can make grandmother’s pineapple bake for Thanksgiving or build gingerbread houses. And, you can even drive around town and look at everyone else’s holiday decorations. (Don’t forget the hot cocoa!) Stay positive by getting really excited about all the things you can still do and put your energy into them. Forget the Formal and Spend Time Together Safely Even though the size of your gathering may change, the tradition of eating a good meal and spending quality time together should not. As the 5X Thanksgiving host, Ereka suggests to keep safe and simple. In a recent Chinet® brand survey, 35% of respondents said they’ll be using disposable tableware for the holidays. Many said their focus is less on a formal setting and more on spending time together safely. In fact the CDC encourages using “single use items”. Fortunately, Chinet® Cut Crystal® collection allows us to get fancy without the fuss. Chinet® Cut Crystal® plates, cups and cutlery are so elegant and come in a completely coordinated collection perfect for holiday celebrations. They have the right combination of strength and style. Chinet® Cut Crystal® collection is the right call if you are looking to spend less time cleaning up and more time with loved ones. Hostess Tips for the Small Group Many are talking about ditching the turkey, but Ereka says go for it- either choose a smaller turkey or go big and enjoy leftovers for days! Another tip for those hosting… Target is here to save the day. You can now use their contactless services Drive Up, Order Pickup or same-day delivery with Shipt to get everything you need for your holiday meals and more, including fresh and frozen groceries nationwide – no membership required. Whether that be a whole frozen turkey, green beans, ready-made sides like garlic mashed potatoes, or apps like these Fig & Rosemary crackers with Brie cheese… Target’s ready to get you what you need, when you need it. This holiday, Target has enhanced their pickup and delivery services to make it even easier and safer to shop for holiday meals and more. They’ve added nearly 8,000 Drive Up spots to serve more guests quickly and 100,000 Shipt shoppers to make getting whatever you need to feed the family as easy as pie. Final Tips to Enjoy the Season Connect any way you can. Take your zoom parties up a notch with playlists, themes and virtual games. FaceTime family members and let them know you care. Enjoy the traditions you love. Bake plenty of goodies. Celebrate and find joy in the smaller moments and appreciate what you have.

The coronavirus outbreak has affected the wedding industry in many ways. Large wedding gatherings might be on hold, but what isn’t on hold is are couples showing their love for one another and getting engaged According to a report by The Knot, more than 6 in 10 engaged couples say that stay-at-home restrictions due to the coronavirus have strengthened their relationships. Jewelers say that despite difficult economic times, they are seeing consumers spend more than ever on diamond engagement rings. The reasons for this include: Increased sense of intimacy and desire to sacrifice for each other More budget available because of canceled weddings and honeymoons Pent up demand to spend after months of nowhere to go This holiday season, fine jewelry retailers are reporting that their diamond sales are strong, with bridal being the primary driver for consumer demand. Strong anecdotal evidence shows that engagements are up over the period since COVID hit in Spring 2020, and jewelers say more couples than ever are choosing diamond engagement rings – eschewing industry concerns that the difficult economy would impact the bridal market.

The nano-filter allows extreme breathability and comfort which, in addition to the excellent protection provided, is one of its strong value propositions.

Even better is that the AirQueen is allowed to be sold to the general public which means you can provide the highest level protection for you and your family and loved ones.

How to Avoid Leaving Benefits on the Table

D S Simon Media

Navigating health plan offerings can be challenging, so it’s important for consumers to understand whether they qualify for more benefits that may help save money and improve health, which can help provide for a more secure and active future as a person ages. Recently, Dr. Stephen Cha, the Chief Medical Officer at UnitedHealthcare Community & State, teamed with YourUpdateTV on a satellite media tour to explain how people can qualify for a dual complete plan. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/MpNGLmYGmnA People who have Medicare and find that money is tight may qualify for a UnitedHealthcare Dual Complete plan – a dual special needs health plan, which may allow them to get better benefits, including dental, hearing and vision coverage at no extra charge. It can also include credits to buy healthy food and help purchase approved health items. Although requirements vary from state to state and by circumstances, if you are a family of one making less than $16,000 a year or a family of 2 making less than $21,000 a year, you may qualify. You will also have someone to help you manage and coordinate your care to help manage through health concerns, which is so important during this pandemic. Putting off care, especially annual wellness visits, can leave health risks undiagnosed and untreated. People eligible for a dual plan can usually enroll for no monthly premium, which may make it an affordable option. These plans are designed for people with low income who could use some extra help because of disabilities, health conditions or age. To learn if you are eligible and getting the most of your benefits, visit http://www.getdual.com or call 1-855-799-3199. About Dr. Stephen Cha Dr. Stephen Cha is Chief Medical Officer of UnitedHealthcare Community & State, where he oversees clinical strategies and programs while acting as the liaison for critical clinical initiatives. He also plays a key role in clinical thought leadership and serves as a subject matter expert in care decisions throughout Community & State. Prior to joining UnitedHealthcare, Dr. Cha served as the Group Director in the State Innovation Group at the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). He has also served as the Chief Medical Officer at the Center for Medicaid & CHIP Services (CMCS), and is a practicing physician. Dr. Cha has a strong background in dynamic health policy thought leadership, health care transformation, and quality reporting.

Supporting Doctors on the Frontlines: How to Become an “Ally of Doctors”

D S Simon Media

2020 has been a tough year, and doctors and healthcare professionals have been working hard on the front lines – more than ever before. While the coronavirus pandemic has upended life for nearly everyone, healthcare workers and doctors have had to face more risks than most. So many of us are in awe of how these professionals still care for patients despite tremendous challenges. Mucinex is rallying Americans coast to coast to become an “Ally of Doctors” to show health care professionals and frontline heroes how much we support, appreciate, and trust them. With only 16% of consumers having reviewed their doctor in the past 12 months, Mucinex is making a nationwide call to action for patients to give back to those who have helped them get better by advocating for their doctors and health care professionals. Consumers are encouraged to review and recommend their own trusted doctors and health care professionals, providing them with the admiration and support they are deserving of, and helping them build a more robust patient network. For every new doctor review left on Healthgrades.com, Mucinex will donate $20 to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), with the goal of donating $20,000 to the next generation of frontline heroes by the end of 2020. This is in addition to Mucinex parent company, RB’s larger pledge of donating 100 scholarships to UNCF – the nation’s most successful minority higher education organization. This support will benefit the organization’s hard-working students who aspire to become the next generation of frontline heroes. Consumers can visit Mucinex.com for more information and Healthgrades.com to review their doctor.

Comodo and Multi-Visions (Canada) Enter into Distribution Agreement for North America

Comodo

Comodo, the world’s leader of next-generation cybersecurity announced a distribution partnership with Multi-Visions (Canada) for North America. Together Comodo and Multi-Visions will bring Comodo’s entire range of cybersecurity solutions, including the Dragon platform with Endpoint Manager RMM, Secure Internet Gateway (SIG), Secure Email Gateway (SEG), Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) and SOC-as-a-Platform (SOCaaP™), to their partner ecosystem. This will enable Multi-Visions partners to easily deploy, manage & monitor any software to their client endpoints, including all modern AVs, and with SOCaaP turn a VAR/MSPs into a full MSSP without up-front capital expenses or additional hires, driving additional high-margin monthly recurring revenue (MRR) and growth. “We are vendor agnostic, partner-focused and help our partner community take full advantage of the best technologies available," said Marc Attala, VP of Sales, Multi-Visions. He continued, “Unlike other RMM vendors like Syncro and NinjaRMM that try to integrate third-party products into their RMM, or next-gen EPP vendors like Crowdstrike & SentinelOne that are too complex and too expensive, Comodo not only provides AEP for the world’s only endpoint protection with Auto-Containment, but also offers Endpoint Manager (RMM), Secure Email Gateway (email security) & Security Internet Gateway (DNS-based internet security & category-based website filtering), all from a single platform, and with bundle and volume-based discounts & pricing. Also, Endpoint Manager RMM can be used to deploy any number of products, including other AV’s, making it perfect for our vendor agnostic approach. Our partners will find it very attractive to no longer pay for and deal with 4-5 separate vendors and platforms, thanks to Comodo.” “We welcome this partnership with Multi-Visions and look forward to reaching out to their entire partner community to show how Multi-Visions and Comodo can provide a single dashboard from which to manage all endpoint security & cloud security operations,” said Farokh Karani, Senior Director – Channels and Alliances for Comodo. He continued, “There’s no reason for a partner to have one interface for RMM, another for endpoint protection, another for cloud-based email security, another for internet security/web filtering solution, and then another to access a SOC to monitor all those functions. And of course, pay separately for RMM, EPP, mail security, internet/web security and SOC as a Service (SOCaaS)”. Multi-Visions chose Comodo’s Dragon platform for its built-in Endpoint Manager RMM and optional Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP), which is a complete cloud-native framework that delivers a zero-trust architecture to protect and defend endpoints. Its patent-pending auto containment technology has active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware and cyber-attacks. The auto containment runs an unknown executable in a kernel API virtualized mode, thereby offering attack surface reduction (ASR) which neutralizes ransomware attacks. The Dragon Platform also utilizes a Default Deny security posture with Default Allow usability to provide a most comprehensive protection against zero-day threats, while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows. Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for every file – no other company will analyze and give trusted verdict for 100% of the files on a network. Comodo’s platform shares intelligence and is therefore more secure than disparate products that claim best of breed but don’t share information. Comodo has architected its cybersecurity product to maximize intelligent sharing between every component of the platform, therefore providing superior security. Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Revenue Office at Comodo said, “Comodo is a partner-centric company and we’re grateful for partners like Multi-Visions for trusting in us to provide the partners that they serve, their total cybersecurity requirements.” About Multi-Visions Based in Montreal Canada, Multi-Visions is a boutique multi-vendor security focused distributor, focused on bringing leading technologies to its partner network throughout North America.
